Have you ever wondered what the biggest and most popular sites on the web are? Well you shouldn’t wonder because you probably already know what they are. Here is a list taken from Alexa’s ranking system that is 100% correct. Alexa is a website monitoring/ranking site that is extremely accurate and is a good way to check the progress of your blog or website.
The Ten Most Popular Websites are –
1. Google – Google has become the number one search engine site in the world. They get the most traffic everyday. I personally have them as my homepage and I’m sure 90% of all Internet users use them at least a few times a week.
2. Yahoo! – Yahoo used to be number one, but recently in the past few years lost it’s lead to Google. Yahoo is a fantastic search engine and is known as a top search engine competitor.
3. Myspace – Everyone who is Hip has a Myspace. It’s a great way to stay in contact with friends and a great time killer. Tom(the owner) must be filthy rich now.
4. YouTube – Who doesn’t visit YouTube when there bored? YouTube just recently in the past two to three years became so popular. It’s a great site to host home made videos on and has millions of postings of every category you can think of.
5. Facebook – Facebook is getting very close to myspace status. Facebook is a little bit more mature looking than myspace and is directed toward college students mainly. I prefer Facebook over myspace.
6. Windows Live – Well windows live has been around a long time, but now it contains many different things, from Hotmail accounts to online video game accounts, Live is all about Microsoft.
7. MSN – A good search engine and ISP. They have been around a while and are still maintaining one of the top websites, good job MSN.
8. Wikipedia – I truthfully never go to Wikipedia unless Google takes me to it when I’m trying to find help for college work, but it’s a great informational site with listings about almost everything.
9. Ebay – The top Internet auction site, I’m surprised it’s not higher on the list. People make their livings off this site and it has established it’s name as the number 1 Auction site ever.
10. AOL – I’m actually surprised people still go to the AOL website. They used to be the best ISP out, but it has been a while since I’ve heard anything from them. Although I do use AIM (AOL instant messenger) it doesn’t require me to go to their site much. Congrats AOL for still being top 10.
